The registration flier for the 2008 edition of the Minnesota State Fair’s 5K Milk Run arrived in the mailbox yesterday. Last year was the first time I ran this very fun race and look forward to running it again this year.
The course starts on the edge of the fairgrounds near Heritage Square, criss-crosses the St. Anthony Park neighborhood, runs through the St. Paul campus of the University of Minnesota and returns back to the fairgrounds.
The $20 entry fee is a bargain: you get a T-shirt, admission to the fair and a coupon for a free malt. Where else can you run a 5K, then eat like a pig for the rest of the day to celebrate?
The field is limited to 1500, so hurry if you want in. Online registration is available here.
